oaths and other truths, by Anonymous
If there’s one thing in this entire damned outfit that he doesn’t regret doing, it’s Nate, though Jake’s got the funny feeling in the back of his mind that in real short order Nate’s going to regret everything to do with him.
It’s for the best. Probably. One day he’ll find a way to make it up to Nate. Maybe.
Teen, pre-movie. For Trick or Treat 2018. Jake and Nate before things went south. This is lovely.

“It hasn’t been two weeks, where they are.”
Natasha felt something cold settle in her gut. “How long?”
Wanda said, “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.” Then she said, “Twenty years. They’ve been alone in the jungle for more than twenty years.”
Adult, AU, AO3 users-only. This fic is like nothing I’ve read before. Steve and Bucky get stranded in another dimension without their memories – and when they return, their friends have to cope with two people who’ve somehow merged into one. Absolutely fascinating!
Steve Rogers Might Wear Tights, but He’s Not Your Pin-Up Girl, by RosaLui, what_alchemy
Bucky enrolls in a college course about Captain America. It doesn’t go well.
Teen, humour, fanart. I absolutely adore fics that show us Steve through pop culture – and this adds another layer by being presented in the form of Bucky writing a hilarious essay ranting about everything the media got wrong.
Attempt #534: The One With The Bees, by mardia
“–But then it’s like, ‘Whoa, this is hot,’ Eleanor continues, a little unsteadily in the face of how Chidi’s staring at her, “–and we start making out…” Eleanor trails off, because now Chidi’s mouth has fallen open a little and it looks, he looks–
“Whatever, fine, let’s just do it,” Eleanor says, giving in to the inevitable, and Chidi blurts out, “Eleanor, what–” except that Eleanor is going for it, she’s rising up and catching Chidi’s soft mouth with hers, her hands landing on Chidi’s chest as they stumble back against the wall.
Adult, canon-compliant. This is utterly perfect and had me smiling from start to finish. Eleanor and Chidi are just so very in-character, I could see it all playing out like an episode. A rather sexy episode. 🙂
Version 119, by pushingcrazies
She needed him, and because she need him he had a first row seat to the very power of decisiveness.
It was intoxicating. Disorienting.
G, missing scenes. This is sweet and funny and gets Chidi 100% right – I’m in love.
Put It On Repeat, It Stays the Same, by giselleslash
It’s meant to be casual, all of it, but for Bucky that was months and endless kisses and fucks ago. Sometimes he wants the ability to go back in time just to be able to laugh at his younger self; laugh and point at him when he first fucks Steve and thinks that’s all it will ever be. He’d laugh as he tells him how he’ll agree to see Steve again and how, that next time, Steve will kiss him slow and sweet and it will never be casual again. He wonders what it would be like to watch himself fall.
Adult, no powers AU. In which Steve and Bucky are The Worst at casual sex – this is warm and funny and sexy, a totally winning combination.

Five times JJ wasn’t really interrupting, plus one time she definitely was.
Teen, 5+1 canon-divergence. This is everything I love about Morgan and Garcia, with a cute dose of JJ.
You’re the Cream in My Coffee, by cimorene
“It’s traditional with married couples to throw out any excess bums, couch potatoes, or hangers-on before settling into the honeymoon nest,” he suggested around a mouthful of foam.
Don was surprised by the attack, but he just moved forward with a damning, liquid roll of his hips and said with a thoughtful air, “I’ve always been one to buck tradition.”
Teen, polyamory. This OT3 is pretty much canon, imo – and this fic tells their story perfectly, right down capturing to the rhythm and whimsy of the movie.
The Needle That Sings In Your Heart, by Enneara
When he had used forbidden magic to drag his brother back from death, binding Rhy’s body to his in the process, sex had been the last thing on Kell’s mind. These days, more often than not, it was the first.
Adult, post-ADSOM. This is everything I wanted when reading about the relationship between Kell and Rhy.
